OBX arrival time contest - Leave Friday the 10th

Post by Bob » Tue Oct 07, 2014 10:54 pm

It's about that time again....contest time for the closest guess for our arrival time in Cape Hatteras.

We leave this Friday so post your guess asap.

I'll give some info to help.

1) Our best guess for leaving is around 12:00 - 3:00 PM CDT Friday October 10th 2014.
2) There is an hour time difference. It's one hour earlier in OBX. EDT.
3) There are only 2 of us driving this time. So we might have to take a short stop.
4) The time used is when we cross S-Turns and the first house on HWY 12 once we reach Rodanthe/Mirlo Beach.
5) Top guess will win a prize.
6) Game ends once we reach our destination.
7) One guess per person.

In the past, it's taken about 19-22 hours to drive except last spring when my truck had a little chest cold and had to sit out part of the trip.

Good luck and we've actually had riders guess the exact time of arrival.

Start guessing kids. Last winner got a prize worth $499.00. Not just some random $5-$10 prize.

Arrival time was 11:22 AM EST. Looks like Air Gunnar narrowly beat out Mandie Crennel.

Air....who are you and I'll let you know the winning prize.
